MBA Students' Results Exceed Other Local, Regional and National ACBSP Programs

MNU recently announced it's 2017-2018 MBA students' results on the Peregrine Academic Services Major Field Test for the MBA program. Compared to other MBA programs using the same test, MNU students did better in every category which includes:
- Business Ethics
- Business Finance
- Business Integration and Strategic Management
- Business Leadership
- Legal Environment of Business
- Quantitative Research and Statistics
The report compared MNU to other universities with the same prestigious accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Business Schools & Programs (ACBSP) in the Midwestern Region and with faith-based institutions, those with blended/hybrid (online and on ground) delivery systems and all ACBSP MBA programs.
MNU uses a variety of means to assess student outcomes in all of its academic programs. Programs in business administration use a set of assessments and measurements to "close the loop" and ascertain the quality of instruction and learning that is achieved.
Dr. Mary Murphy, professor of Graduate Studies in Management, says an interesting aspect regarding these results is that most of MNU's MBA students did not major in business for their undergraduate degree.
"One of my best students was a music major. She worked hard and did very well in her MBA."
It adds up to good students and great professors according to Murphy.
"Our professors feel a calling to be here. They go above and beyond what some might do to help students learn. This is why I teach. When I see a student learn a difficult concept and their final paper is so good, I feel like I'm adding to this world."
Peregrine provides nationally normed, summative assessment services for business administration academic programs that are used for internal and external program evaluation. The assessment service is specifically designed to address most ACBSP accreditation requirements related to learning outcomes assessment, quality assurance, and external academic benchmarking.
